We had planned to drive to a local town to watch a firework display, but then our neighbors invited us over to enjoy their fireworks. We jumped at the chance to watch from our own neighborhood and avoid the drive, late night, unknown traffic conditions, and an exhausted toddler who hadn't had a nap. It was a lot of fun and the kids loved being up close to the display.
I've been working on improving my photography skills in various conditions and managed to get a few fairly nice shots of the fireworks last night. There is definitely room for improvement. I need to work on framing and next time I will get out my tripod and remote release, but I'm fairly pleased with the results.
